my name is kat

~My name is Kat~ is going to be a periodic blog post where I talk about myself. Cause we alllll know I like to do that. :) So here we go.
My name is Kat.....
and I like to exercise,
pick my nose when I drive,
and put tons of things in my shopping cart at Target only to buy a couple in the end.
My name is Kat....
and I weigh as much as I did in high school thanks to group fitness classes.
My name is Kat.....
and I am angry,
I yell too much at my kids
and expect more out of my 3 year old son than is fair because he can talk like a 5-6 year old.
My name is Kat....
I am married to a man who will always be better than me in my eyes
and I like that.
My name is Kat.....
I can't wait to have my 3rd baby but I know it's still not time.
My name is Kat....
and I'm jealous of lots of people lots of the time.
I feel guilty for that jealousy and try to replace it with marvel and love.
Sometimes it works and sometimes I'm still green with envy.
My name is Kat....
and I'm moving to Kauai.
Please come visit me.

YAY!!!!! I was just thinking of you this weekend 'cause I went to Kauai for a day :). I'm so glad you'll be close by.

As I was reading this I was like ME TOO, ME TOO, until the end and then it was like, oh no not me too. But we will for sure come visit!! I'm so happy for you guys!

Your name is Kat...and you are dependable, full of love, intelligent, amazing, funny, beautiful, sassy, wickedly talented, an amazing cook and baker, trustworthy, fantastic, lovely and stylish. This list could go on and on - it really could.

Your name is Kat and you are the BEST. And it will give me mucho incentive to buy myself a ticket to the land of milk and honey (and beaches, too!) to see my bestie! I love you. I'm so excited for you. I'm sad for myself, but today, I'm turning that sadness into happiness and excitement for you!! xoxox

And Michael is better than you? Hmm. No offense to Michael, because I do think he's great, but in my opinion, he totally married up!! I think it's awesome, though, that we always think this way in marriage. If we are always thinking in this regard, we can always be happy knowing that the "grass is NOT greener on the other side." You know what i mean?

Anyway, I love you. Tons and tons. xoxo

Hi Kat. It's nice to finally see the real you coming out in this post. I have felt so often that you keep it all bottled up and never show us who you are.

P.S. I am jealous of you all the time and have a love/hate relationship with your awesome physique and the chance that you get to move to Kauai. Hmmm, I will replace the hate and jealousy with marvel and love.

Nope. Not working.

Oh how I am going to miss you and your honestly. I truly say my life is better because I met you!!! Thanks!

I like this post. I wish the person you were describing were me...but unfortunately I don't think any of these things apply to me...except I'm pretty sure I married up too and I also pick my nose in the car. So hmmm. Love you Kat!

Loved this post because it was so "you". I totally wish that I will come and visit you one day. And I TOTALLY wish that I will look half as good in a bathing suit than you do:)

p.s our valentine's day wasn't too exciting either. Take out lunch from Chili's and happy 30 minutes of alone time when both kids slept. I think it's OK to want something elaborate even when you think it's commercial or cheesy or whatever. Cute idea with the pillows.
